  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson released    Tue Mar 13, 05:11 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson was officially released Tuesday, March 13.

Footballguys view: Peterson landed on Injured Reserve with a neck injury in 2017. He says his neck is completely healed and Peterson is looking forward to playing in 2018. Now, he just needs to find a team willing to sign him. Peterson is far from the player he used to be but could find work as a part-time back. It might take some time for him to find work.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be released    Mon Mar 12, 08:07 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released Monday, March 12, according to a source. He is due a $750,000 bonus on the third day of the league year.

Footballguys view: Peterson played for two teams in 2017 (Saints, Cardinals) and may not have much of a market for his services now that he's available. The veteran back had a cap hit of $3 million that gets cleared away now. He could still return to Arizona later at a lower price.

  InCardinals | Adrian Peterson not close to retirement    Sat Feb 3, 01:21 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will turn 33 years old in March, but he recently told the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson he wants at least four more years.

Footballguys view: Peterson seemed to end up under the line of primary backs this year, and that line is just going to get higher with the introduction of any very strong class of backs. It remains to be seen whether Peterson can accept a backup role after how his stint in New Orleans ended up.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be released    Wed Jan 31, 02:31 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released, according to Fox Sports Radio's Mike Jurecki. Peterson's salary cap hit would be $3.5 million for 2018.

Footballguys view: Peterson had a few moments with the Cardinals last year, but despite running with a lot of intensity and urgency, Peterson doesn't appear to have enough juice to deserve a starting job in the NFL anymore. He'll have to decide if he's willing to be a bench/role player next year.

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, according to a source.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson remains sidelined    Thu Dec 14, 01:39 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Looks like another week where Peterson will not be available, but Kerwynn Williams is not a great option in his place. He is a decent RB3/Flex option but that's about it.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson's status unclear    Wed Dec 13, 04:25 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) may not play again this season as head coach Bruce Arians said he has 'no idea' if Peterson will recover from his neck injury in time.

Footballguys view: We could see Kerwynn Williams as the starter for the Cardinals again this week. On the road against Washington in Week 15, Williams is a RB3 or deep flex play if he's starting for Arizona.

  Cardinals | No timetable for Adrian Peterson    Fri Dec 8, 09:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) has already been ruled out for Week 14, and head coach Bruce Arians said there is no timetable for Peterson's return.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries are nothing to mess around with. The team needs to take it easy on Peterson so the injury is not further aggravated. With Peterson already out for Week 14, Kerwynn Williams gets another start for the Cardinals. We like him as a RB3 against the Titans on Sunday.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson likely out    Fri Dec 8, 11:29 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is likely out for Week 14, according to sources. The injury doesn't require surgery.

Footballguys view: Peterson might not play again this year with the delicate nature of neck issues. Sadly, he probably won't be seen as a lead back for any remaining years of his career.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson does not practice    Thu Dec 7, 04:50 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: Peterson doesn't look likely to play this week, so look to Kerwynn Williams this week. Williams was solid against the Rams last week, but faces a tough Tennessee secondary with little support from the pass game. He's no more than a RB5 flier this week whether Peterson plays or not.

Footballguys view: Teams don't mess around with neck injuries. Peterson will have to be cleared by doctors in order to play in Week 14. If Peterson is down again, we could see Kerwynn Williams as the Cardinals starter once more.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson appears unlikely to play    Sun Dec 3, 10:31 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) remains a game-time decision for Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams but the team is pessimistic about his chances of playing, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Kerwynn Williams would start if Peterson is out, but he's dealing with a rib injury. DJ Foster is the name to watch in the backfield here, especially in PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | D.J. Foster in line for carries    Fri Dec 1, 10:04 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB D.J. Foster is expected to step into a bigger role if RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is unable to play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'Carries could easily fall into his lap,' Arians said. 'Quickly.'

Footballguys view: Foster made a key play in the upset of the Jags last week and appears to be on the rise with Adrian Peterson's neck keeping him from practice this week.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson joins dubious list    Sat Nov 11, 10:31 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson became the seventh player in NFL history to gain less than 30 rushing yards while carrying the ball 20 or more times when he rushed for 29 yards on 21 carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Peterson is at least a volume Flex play or RB2 against Houston next week in a game that Arizona should be able to stay in for the entire game, but his downside is clear against good defenses when he is playing from behind, and David Johnson could be back in a few weeks, so Peterson's suitability as a contributor in the fantasy playoffs is questionable.

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried the ball 21 times for 29 yards (1.4 YPC) during the team's 22-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. Peterson caught one pass for 13 yards.

Footballguys view: Peterson was often met in the backfield. Perhaps next week will be ok against Houston when the Cardinals have a better chance of playing from ahead. David Johnson could be back soon to torpedo Peterson's value for the fantasy playoffs, but he's a still a potential flex on volume alone next week.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be featured    Fri Nov 3, 11:18 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be featured in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. 'Feed the beast,' offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said of Peterson. 'It's like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We've just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable.'

Footballguys view: Peterson is a borderline RB1 this week with six teams on bye and a very favorable matchup against the 49ers banged up defense.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson logs 48 snaps in debut    Mon Oct 16, 01:01 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson played 48-of-65 offensive snaps in Week 6 - his first game with the team since he was acquired from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the week.

Footballguys view: He played 45 snaps in four games with the Saints in 2017. He clearly wasn't a good fit for New Orleans, but Peterson looked right at home as the lead ball-carrier for the Cardinals on Sunday. So long as the Cardinals can play with a lead, then Peterson has at least RB2 value for fantasy owners.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson coming out for third downs    Thu Oct 12, 11:47 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will not play on third downs, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Peterson has never really been a good third down back and at his age, the reality he is a liability in pass protection. He's the lead back, so he'll get carries, but his age and the general limitations of his body at this stage in his career make him no more than a low-end RB3 against Tampa this weekend.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson lands in Arizona    Tue Oct 10, 11:50 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, Oct. 10, for a conditional draft pick, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Peterson has more chance to have fantasy value in Arizona than he did in New Orleans, but we should temper expectations with the reality of the Cardinals running game. Even David Johnson was lackluster as a runner before he went down. David Johnson, Chris Johnson, and Kerwynn Williams combined for barely two yards a carry in their respective stints as the lead back. He needs to get up to 15-20 carries for his effectiveness to peak, but it is questionable that the Cardinals will get him there in many games - no Cardinals back has more than 13 carries in a game this year. Peterson is worth a waiver add to see what happens, but he shouldn't be prioritized over Jerick McKinnon, Aaron Jones, or Elijah McGuire, and maybe not even over Marlon Mack or Matt Breida.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson tweaked knee    Thu Sep 28, 11:27 AM

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) tweaked his knee in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27. However, the injury isn't considered serious, and his absence Thursday was a mix of the knee issue and a veteran's day off.

Footballguys view: As we have said before, Mark Ingram is the workhorse and Alvin Kamara is the third down back. Even if he's healthy, Peterson isn't worth having in your lineups.

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson does not have any problems with head coach Sean Payton and the team has no plans of trading or releasing Peterson, according to sources. The team hopes to run the ball more in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Maybe Peterson gets more use if the Saints get goal-to-go situations inside the five or want to run more in an attempt to keep Tom Brady on the sidelines, but if he gets single-digit snaps again this week, it will be time to drop Peterson next week.

Footballguys view: Just seeing Peterson in the preseason is very rare. He wasn't overwhelmingly bad or good in this contest. Peterson is a speculative 6th/7th pick and he will be motivated in Week 1 against his old team, the Vikings.
